Women say they’re less likely to succeed if they raise their voices and show emotion

The Senate voted Friday to advance the nomination of Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court. It’s one sign that Kavanaugh’s emotional testimony in front of the U.S. Senate Judiciary Committee on last week didn’t do irreparable damage to his chances of ascending to a seat on the highest court in the land. The testimony of Dr. Christine Blasey Ford, who spoke in measured terms about an alleged sexual assault by Kavanaugh nearly four decades ago, was widely praised for her poise and ability to remain calm throughout.

Speaking to the Senate Judiciary Committee on Sept. 27, Blasey Ford recounted her allegation that Kavanaugh, who was nominated by President Trump as a Supreme Court justice, pinned her to a bed, put his hand over her mouth and attempted to remove her clothing when they were both high school students 36 years ago.
